Imagine my surprise when I posted this picture of my 8 year old son painting a pumpkin at school and it received the attention of someone very special. Being a complete wise-ass I commented by saying: “And it’s a masterpiece worthy of any museum. #banksy has nuthin’ on him!” Please note that, despite the foolish grin, there is a certain sadness captured in the eyes of the pumpkin, highlighted by a single blue tear. Perhaps knowing that he will soon be nothing more than a rotting mass in the dumpster or that his seeds have been cooked and consumed was too much for him to bear.
On a completely different side note, GIF artist ABVH did a nice lil piece featuring some of Banksy’s work from his past month in the Big Apple, NYC.
As Banksy himself says, “I am what the madness has made me. Or am I?” You can join over 123, 000 others and follow him on Instagram HERE.
